We stayed ready for Asuka

Share the joy


Everybody who comes to Cageside Seats has an opinion about what’s going on in pro wrestling – The Smark’s Shoot Standings (S3) are where YOU let us know YOURS.

Cast a vote in the comments. Give us the four performers you think entertained or impressed the most in the last week, and feel free to talk about why. And/or vote for your top performer in our poll.

We also have the outcome of last week’s voting, the results of which make up our annual competition for Performer of the Year.

Remember, the Standings are for the previous week’s nationally televised and internet streaming pro wrestling shows – WWE’s TLC pay-per-view (PPV), Evolve 118, the Dec. 17 episode of Monday Night Raw, SmackDown on Tues, Dec. 18, NXT UK, 205 Live, NXT & ROH TV from Wednesday, Thursday’s Tribute To The Troops & Impact Wrestling and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from Dec. 16 – 22, 2018.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

She wasn’t even champ yet and you all voted her #1…


Probably cause we’ve been scared AND aroused since she was in NXT.

  • The entire top of the SmackDown Women’s division made the cut. The Queen got a point for battling the Empress, and The Man got eight for sitting at commentary, taking some kendo stick shots. Also probably for tweeting.
  • Another person probably poised for an equally large amount of support this week is the former Heart of 205 Live, who got a lot of love just for a guest starring role opposite the WWE champ.
  • Agreeing with us that Raw sucks and thwarting Baron Corbin would get anyone votes. It got the Architect enough to finish fifth. We still love the man whe refereed his main event, too, even if he was kind of compromised at the time in question.
  • A Prince and a King proved the open challenge gimmick works in NXT, too.
  • Check out the ROH TV champ making the top ten!
